One of the wonderful and talented CTMH consultants, Tracey Sanders posted her creations on her blog, http://www.gr8scraps.blogspot.com/ complete with cutting directions and I had to give a couple of them a try. Please go to her blog and let her know how much you love them, she has so many great things that she has created using the new Art Philosophy cricut cartridge. If you haven't gotten yours yet you can go here and place your order. You won't believe how versatile this one cartridge is. Tracey made hers in the larger size to attach a jumbo candy cane to.
I wanted to use them to attach pencils as little Christmas presents for Jackson's kindergarten class, I'll be looking for the fat ones that little hands use, but regular size ones were all I had available for the picture.
I'll be more than happy to share the sizes that I reduced them down to if you are interested. Tracey has all the cutting sizes on her blog for the large ones. I cut my bow ties out of white cardstock and brayered over them in cranberry with a decorative brayer that I have instead of using patterned paper. Oh and did you notice the Angry Bird, another one of Tracey's creations, that I just love.
All of the cuts were done using the Art Philosophy cartridge and CTMH paper. On the Angry bird I also used some liquid glass on his eyes to make them shine.
